Astaire is the first update released for Burnout Paradise on January 22, 2008.

It fixed a firewall and security bug which caused some players to encounter a problem online, which was discovered in the demo, and involved players being removed from online games due to connection errors.

The update was named Astaire after Criterion released the Bogart update. At which point all future updates were meant to follow an alphabetical order based on the first letter in their title: Astaire, Bogart, Cagney, Davis, and Eastwood.
